Behind the back door of our classroom the below thistle has burst forth. The pink is amazing and the leaves are beautiful, however it is still a weed. I have been reading a book at the moment called Weeds by Richard Mabey, which is fascinating.
Green and while spiky leaves
Today, this bird was spied, I had never seen anything like it around here before and on checking out my bird book am pretty sure that it was a Common Buzzard. It was wonderful to see and it was anything but common to me.. more majestic as it swooped off over the fields of oilseed rape.
A bit far off, but better than no picture at all.
Oilseed rape blooming under a sky of blue, dotted with fluffy clouds.
And lastly a photograph of a horse which I often see on my dog walking. This one always comes over to say hello to Morganlefay.
